A vibrant capacity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is pivotal to increasing our nation’s productivity.
STEM Education is the learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an interdisciplinary or integrated approach. Students gain and apply knowledge, deepen their understanding and develop creative and critical thinking skills within an authentic context. It may include inquiry and project-based learning. By developing curiosity and knowledge of STEM disciplines students make connections and see the relevance for future career pathways.
